Your Generous Support Makes a Difference

Thanks to the generous support of everyone who attended the Imagine 2018 Luncheon, we raised over $220,000 for Colorado kids. With that money, we will continue our work to keep all children safe and healthy by supporting experts in the field, advocating for children and engaging with communities.

At last week’s luncheon, we were honored to award Linda Alvarado with the Imhoff Family Community Award and Reggie Bicha with the Kempe Professional Award. These individuals are dedicated not only to the work of Kempe, but also to supporting children in our community through various other channels. We were also thrilled to welcome our keynote speaker, Steve Pemberton, who inspired us all with his uplifting story of resilience.

Child Abuse Prevention Month is just around the corner. We ask that you take some time to think about how you can be part of the future we are working toward – a future where every child is safe and healthy, and child abuse and neglect are a thing of the past.
